The 22-year cycle with magnetic polarity reversal




It has long been recognized that the Sun reverses all of its magnetic fields to their opposite polarization in a 11-year cycle, and back again in the next cycle, for a full cycle time of 22 years. The magneto-graphic illustration shown here indicates how the various regions of the Sun had been magnetically polarized over the spans of the last 45 years.

But how is the polarization reversal generated? What controls it? What controls the timing?




The answer is amazing. For this we need to go back to the high-energy discharge experiment by Anthony Peratt at the Los Alamos National Laboratory.




The plasma structure that formed in the high-energy experiment, created a large confinement dome. The plasma pressure that builds up under the dome appears to be directed downward and increases the plasma outflow into the Sun. The differential creates a corresponding magnetic-field polarity.

However, when the pressure builds up in the confinement dome to such an intensity that it exceeds the strength of the containment field, the dome ruptures at the top, at its weakest point. When this happens, some of the built-up pressure in the dome vents into space in the opposite direction of flow. The change in balance, together with the magnetic disconnection at the top of the dome, generates a strong magnetic field with opposite polarity. The opposite polarity, thereby, becomes the dominant polarity from this point on. The polarity is maintained for as long as the outflow from the dome continues, or is forced to change by external causes.

Inversely, when the pressure in the dome drops, and the containment is re-established, or is re-established by external causes, the original magnetic polarity becomes dominant again. The magnetic field then flips again to its former orientation.

By this dynamic principle, a plasma stream flowing in the same direction, can create an oscillation of alternately oriented magnetic fields. This type of principle is evidently the cause for the cyclical polarity reversal that we see evident on the Sun.




However, the polarity reversal isn't quite as simple as that. The magneto-graphic illustration, that shows the changing polarity in the regions of the Sun, from pole to pole, over the span of a solar cycle, shows that the magnetic reversal in the polar regions of the Sun, occurs late in the solar cycle, almost 5 years late. This delay creates a puzzle in mechanistic cosmology. It shouldn't be happening. The delay is theorized to be caused by magnetic material slowly drifting from the active regions to the poles. Can this be so?




In plasma language the delay is recognized as the result of the natural differential of the magnetic field propagation caused by different media. In empty space, magnetic fields propagate at the speed of light. In dense plasma streams the propagation speed is determined by the density of the plasma, which is typically the plasma's pressure-propagation speed.




If one considers that the primer fields are potentially located half-way within the heliosphere, the Sun's distance to the primer fields is roughly 7 billion kilometers. The 5-year delay over this distance adds up to a propagation speed of 45 km/sec, which is well within the range of what is reasonably possible.

This means that the polarity reversal delay is not an enigma in plasma language.




For most of the Sun, the polarity reversal is not delayed, because the magnetic field lines that flow outside of the plasma stream, propagate near the speed of light. The fast fields evidently don't reach all the way down to the poles. The poles would be dominated by the high-density plasma flow.

The slow plasma flow, in the high-density plasma stream, in comparison with the magnetic propagation speed that affects the central region of the Sun, is also responsible for the shape of the sunspot cycles as we see them evident increasingly.




The reason why the solar activity peaks at the middle of a solar cycle is, that it takes 5 years for plasma-pressure wave from the primer fields, that is generated as a type of shock wave with the polarity reversal, to reach to the Sun. The delay is due to the long transition time crossing 7 billion kilometers of space from the primer fields to the Sun.

The plasma pressure around the Sun is a critical variable factor for solar activity. When the plasma density is high, two things happen. The solar activity becomes intense and large numbers of sunspots are created. High plasma density on the Sun also blocks to a larger degree cosmic-ray emissions from the Sun. The effect makes the peak of the solar cycle, with the densest plasma sphere around the Sun, the weakest in solar cosmic-ray flux. Inversely, it makes the valley between the solar cycles, which is weak in plasma pressure around the Sun, the period of the strongest solar cosmic-ray flux reaching the Earth, and also the period of the largest coronal holes.




The 11-year solar cycle itself, begins with a shock event in the confinement domes. The process of breaching or closing a confinement dome's magnetic structure, changes the polarity of the magnetic field orientation that is projected from the Primer fields onto the Sun. The shock in the dome, thereby starts the magnetic field reversal, which becomes evident immediately on the surface of the Sun.

In addition, the shock event in the dome, also sets off a plasma pressure wave from the input dome. The wave builds up pressure around the Sun, which gains it maximum in typically 5 years and diminishes thereafter, as the built-up wave flows past the Sun. The pressure build-up and diminishment is reflected in the sunspot numbers. The numbers gain their maximum at maximum plasma pressure.

The shock event in the magnetic confinement dome, of course, also emits a magnetic wave along the axis of the plasma stream. The magnetic field propagation is a slow process in a high density plasma stream. But it too, reaches the Sun in about 5 years, projected from the input side. As a tightly confined stream, the projected magnetic polarity, affects only the polar region of the Sun, above the 60 degrees latitude. When it becomes active, it 'flips' the polar magnetic field orientation in the northern hemisphere.

The magnetic polarity from the out-flow side takes a little longer to arrive at the Sun, as it flows through less-dense plasma. The lower density that results, results from the Sun having consumed a portion of the plasma stream. The lower density, thereby increases the propagation time. Thus, the magnetic wave that flows from the out-flow side, affects the polar region in the southern hemisphere of the Sun, somewhat delayed.

By this differential origin, the polar magnetic field reversals do not happen at the same time in both hemispheres. The time difference can be as much as a year, or longer, reflecting differences in propagation time. But ultimately, the timing of the polar reversals are of not great significance.

The timing that separates the solar cycles from each other is not the polar magnetic reversal, but is the shock event that starts the magnetic reversal at home base, in the confinement domes.

Several types of oscillations have the potential to cause the big solar cycles oscillation to happen? The oscillation can potentially be caused by the plasma pressure wave arriving at the dome on the out-flow side. The wave arrives there after its 11-year propagation crossing 15 billion kilometers of space, flowing in a tightly confined plasma stream.




With both of the primer fields being magnetically connected with each other across 'empty' space, the pair of primer fields have the potential to be magnetically synchronized within a couple of hours. In cosmic terms, that's instantaneous.




The 11-year solar cycle may also be the result of a 2-way magnetic oscillation cycle, each flowing within in the high-density plasma stream to their opposite primer fields. Each of the magnetic field projection would take the same path and reach the other's magnetic dome at the same time. This could cause a magnetic reversal to happen without external synchronization.

It could also be that both, the magnetic waves and the plasma wave, acting together, may cause the polarity reversal in the domes that starts the next solar cycle.




It is worth noting at this point that as the solar system as a whole is diminishing. It has been weakening from the late 1990s onward. As the result of the general weakening, the polar magnetic field strength of the Sun has diminished accordingly. The same wakening is also expressed in slower propagation times throughout the system. This has lengthen the interval between the polarity reversals that start the next solar cycle. The lengthened interval has lengthened the solar cycle as a whole.

Something big is in progress here that has sparked significant concerns. The magneto graphic that is presented here is a composite result of a major study.




The graphic is contained within a 19-page research report "The reversal of the Sunís magnetic field in cycle 24", by contributors from three major institutions, and data from leading-edge facilities.




The potential increase of the duration of the solar cycle 24, is not trivial. For cycle 23, the increase in duration was 23%. Cycle 24 promises to increase that.

The weakening of the plasma streams in the solar system is also expressed in lower sunspot numbers. For cycle 23, the sunspot numbers were 15% lower. It is interesting to note too, that solar cycle 23 covered the entire time frame in which the Ulysses spacecraft had measured the solar wind-pressure, and saw it diminishing by 30%, between the start and the end of the cycle. Also note that in comparison with cycle 24, cycle 23 was still a strong cycle.




The vanished northern magnetic field.




The weakening of the plasma streams in the solar system is even expressed in the Sun's polar magnetic field strength. Note, that in comparison with cycle 22, the polar magnetic field reversal in cycle 23 was significantly weaker, and that for cycle 24, the northern reversal is missing altogether.




Solar cycle 24 began in 2008. The traditional polar polarity reversal should have happened in 2013, five years into the cycle. But it didn't happen.

Some form of reversal appears to have happened in the southern polar region, in 2015, seven years into the solar cycle, and two years late. But in the northern polar region of the Sun, no sign has been seen of anything decisive happening. up to 2016, which is the limit of the data available.




The missing northern polar polarity is also shockingly evident in the Hathaway solar magnetic graphic that covers a slightly longer timeframe. The northern solar polarity change that should have happened in 2013, isn't late this time. It didn't materialize. It didn't happen at all.




The missing polarity seems to indicate that the plasma inflow into the primer fields system was too weak for anything significant to happen. The reason why the southern polarity start-up did happen, may be due to the southern magnetic polarity being reflective. It reflects back the effect of the magnetic reversal carried by the old plasma density from the previous solar cycle, which apparently was stronger than the new density flowing into the system, which has become so weak that it no longer makes the grade.

The northern solar reversal that we saw in cycle 23, may have been the last one for the next 90,000 years till the next interglacial period recovers the now fading solar system. It seems that we crossed the bridge to no-return already in this respect.

The Sun's polar magnetic polarity may end altogether in cycle 25, and not materialize for the next 90,000 years, potentially together with the sunspots. This seems to tell us that the solar system is in the first phases of crashing. This should raise some eyebrows, because the next system reset isn't scheduled to be happening until the year Ninety-Two Thousand and Twenty. That's a long way away.




The modern technology that we now have, enables us to measure events that we couldn't have seen prior to the 1970s. Fortunately, the early measurements that we now have available, especially those for cycles 21 and 22, gave us a yardstick with which to measure the dramatic weakening that has begun with cycle 23, and has increased in cycle 24, and is continuing to increase.




When the 'shoe' drops.




The entire solar system is presently in a state of transition. The dynamics are getting weaker, and the propagation times are getting longer. The weakening of the dynamics that we have witnessed in technological measurements, are far from being trivial.

The changes that we saw appear even more momentous when one considers that the primer fields that are critical for the solar dynamics, are themselves magnetic constructs that are formed by the movement of flowing plasma. They are formed by it. Their geometry is shaped by it. They depend on a minimal volume of plasma flowing. And that's precisely what our measurements tell us, is now diminishing, and is diminishing rapidly.

We don't know, unfortunately, where on the diminishing slope the threshold is crossed where the entire interconnected dynamic structure falls apart and vanishes as if it never existed. But we do know that when this happens, the dynamics that focus plasma onto the Sun, no longer happen. The timeframe of the high-powered Sun then ends.




The Sun's activity level will then drop off to a much-lower-lever default state, a kind of hibernation state, where the Sun's surface temperature will be maintained at potentially the 4,000 degrees level, instead of the present 5,800 degrees Kelvin.




The resulting 70% colder Sun, will usher in the next Ice Age that renders the Earth largely uninhabitable, partly because of the cold, and partly because of the resulting 80% reduction of precipitation, because of the cold.




Humanity cannot continue to exist under such conditions. All regions outside the subtropics become ice-bound with no hope for agriculture to continue, and in the regions that remain ice-free, the lands become deserts for the lack of rainfall. Both effects combined, assure a near total loss of agriculture across the world. That's what's at stake for the near future, potentially in the 2050s. That's what we are rushing into without anyone knowing it, and with the scientific community closing its eyes to it. Nevertheless, the consequences will be experienced with near absolute certainty. The Ice Age will happen. The process has already begun. It has been in progress for some time already.




The slowing solar heartbeat, the diminishing sunspot numbers, and the weakening and missing solar polarity reversals, are merely the latest additions to the now increasing 'rush' towards the next Ice Age.




I have pointed out in a previous video, that the interglacial climate began to cool shortly after its maximum, and that the cooling is now accelerating.




Then three thousand years ago the big warming spikes began to diminish too, and the intervals between them became shorter.




Similarly, a thousand years ago the solar minimum events became colder, and the intervals between them, likewise became of shorter duration.

While we were 'rescued' in the 1700s from collapsing back into the full Ice Age, the rescue pulse that saved us is now spent.




The solar system is rushing back to the conditions that we just barely escaped from, and wich are diminishing towards still lower levels.




The diminishing solar-wind pressure, that began in the late 1990s, that the Ulysses satellite saw the beginning of as a 30% reduction of the solar-wind pressure in the time of a single solar cycle (cycle 23), is just another step of the ever-increasing 'rush' to the next Ice Age that we find ourselves in.

These events are real. They are not projections of something that may happen. They have already happened. They are a part of the history of the Sun. Neither are these solar events isolated events. They are way marks on a path that we cannot get away from, that is becoming evermore precarious.




In this context, the now missing polar magnetic reversal of the northern region of the Sun, is just another 'shoe' dropping off along the path.




As I pointed out in a previous video, the Ice Age is near, even statistically. It is scientifically understood and also scientifically hidden. Science should be the voice of truth. It may be that again some day.




What we call the Ice Age, is a long-term 'solar cycle' that has been extensively researched, is extensively understood, and has been effectively buried. This tragedy needs to be reversed before it becomes an even bigger tragedy for all humanity.

The Ice Age has put us on a train to oblivion that we cannot avoid. We can only aim to sidestep the consequences of the coming Ice Age, by building us the technological infrastructures to do so, but we cannot stop the train from rolling. Nothing can stop the Ice Age dynamics, but we can act to get ready for them.




The revolutionary principle, The principle of universal good






While we have the capability and the resources to build us a new world in the tropics, with modern types of technological infrastructures that the Ice Age cannot touch, nothing on this line is even considered, much less being built.

For meeting the Ice Age Challenge, we need to build 6,000 new cities for a million people each, in the tropics, preferable along the equator, with new agriculture attached to them, enough to nourish 7 billion. And since suitable land is scarce in the tropics, the new infrastructures will need to be placed afloat across the equatorial sea.




Do I here any protests here, with screams that this is impossible to do?

Of course this is impossible to do in the present landscape of zero-sum economics.

Zero-Sum equals impotence.




The oligarchic masters who aim to rule the world, say to society, when we rob you to the bone, the total wealth in the world hasn't changed by the process. The losers are balanced by the winner. When the differences are added up, the sum is zero.

Except this game is a deception by intention, to hide the crime. As the oligarchic masters steal liberally from society, according to the platform of liberalism, they diminish the creative and productive capacity of society, and as a consequence the world becomes poorer and poorer, till in the extreme there is no productive power left in the world, and the people perish.

The stolen wealth, of course, becomes meaningless in a world with a dead economy. When one adds this "advanced" world up, the sum-total does indeed add up to zero.

It is not possible to build anything on this zero-sum platform, much less a new world with high-end technological infrastructures.

So, what's the answer? How can we build a new world and live, and live richly?




The answer lies in the opposite of the dead-end game. The answer lies building one-another up to increase the creative and productive power of society to the utmost. This means that the new cities will be built rent-free, as an investment by society into itself. No more rent slavery. Here the goal is no longer a sum of zero in the end, as in the Zero-Sum game. The goal is to increase the productive capacity of society 100,000 fold. That's the natural creative gain that is realized routinely in the universe.




Whenever an atom is synthesized, the resulting structure is 100,000-time larger than the sum of its parts. That's the natural dimension of creativity. On this platform anything can be built. The more is being build, the richer the world becomes.




Then the foremost question will no longer be, where will the money come from? The question will then be, what else can we build to enrich our world, and our civilization within it? The money for it will be created, if money should still play a role by then.




A long time ago, in the late 1800s, the world-renowned American spiritual leader, named Mary Baker Eddy, had created a textbook to convey her discoveries. She had produced it with a glossary attached. In the glossary she defined the term, God. She defined it with a long list of synonymous spiritual concepts that characterize God. Surprisingly, the term, "good," is not in the list. But, isn't God, good? Isn't it the standard concept in Christianity, that God is good? How did she solve the paradox that she created, of the missing, "good," in her definition for God?

She solved the paradox in a profound manner. She defined the term, "good," separately. She defined the term "Good" AS "God." She says Good is God.

She says 'Good' IS 'God' (universal). Good is thereby not private in nature, but universal and limitless. She says in essence that if good isn't universal, there is something fundamentally lacking.




On the platform of universal good, the needed 6,000 new cities can be built, and will be built, because it fun and exciting to live and work as a human being. Universal good is the heart of our humanity.

Of course we are not at the decisive breakout yet, reaching for the platform of universal good. China has taken some courageous steps towards universal good, with the Belt and Road Initiative.

We, in the West, in comparison, presently lack the love for our own humanity to move in this direction likewise. In American history, the principle used to be called the General Welfare Principle. The principle is no longer honoured. We may claim it back, as China has done.

But these, even the best of them, are but baby steps. We need to move in leaps and bounds to match the universe and its 100,000-fold gain in creativeness. When our love for one-another will enable us to do so, then we will have a future, with a vastly richer civilization in more prosperous world than we presently have.†

But at the present stage, the zero-sum stage, we cannot reach for this future for the lack of the love that would inspire us to acknowledge us as human beings, and as sons of the universe.

Some day we will see this happening, We will see us rise out of the easy chair and put the spate into the ground so to speak. Then we will have a chance.




To illustrate that the lack of love for our humanity is still extensive, is evident by the fact that we still harbour tens of thousands of nuclear bombs that we have built against each other, and keep on hand, with which to eradicate our existence - which we continuously 'improve' in terms of their destructive capability, instead of us scrapping them all. But it only takes a change in perspective to start a complete turn-around.




In the current arena of tenacious insanity, the Ice Age Challenge may be our final hope, as it might inspire a new focus of concern and love for our humanity that would raise us out of the nuclear-weapons trap and related issues with near absolute certainty.




We have 'lived' in the nuclear weapons trap for 70 years, with all efforts having failed so far, for getting out of the trap.

Evidently our efforts have been too small, and our attempts too trivial.




While the Ice Age phase shift is still roughly 30 years distant, its challenge is momentous and cannot be avoided, whereby it has the potential to change us and our outlook in the present, from its confrontational mode towards the principle of the universal good, meeting the common aims of humanity. If we raise ourselves up to this universal level as human beings, the challenge can be honestly, and easily addressed.




But why should we fail on this front? The prospects that we find there are tremendous. Building a new world across the sea, with new cities and new agriculture for almost 7 billion people, opening the door to greater prosperity and happiness than we have today, is imminently achievable. So why should anyone opt for death by starvation by doing nothing to prevent it, if a richer world than any yet imagined lays within our grasp? Let's reach for it and live.
